Spey Resources Corp. Announces Closing of Private Placement and Grant of Stock Options
Vancouver, April 16, 2019 - Spey Resources Corp. (CSE: SPEY) ("Spey" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") previously announced on March 19, 2019 has now closed. Under the Private Placement, the Company issued an aggregate of 1,350,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.06 per Unit for gross proceeds of $81,000. Each Unit was comprised of one (1) common share (each, a "Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one (1) non-transferrable Common Share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.10 per Common Share until April 10, 2020. All dollar amounts in this release are expressed in Canadian dollars.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a four-month and a day transfer restriction from the date of issuance. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for general corporate purposes including G&A as well as further evaluation of the Company's current property and additional properties under review. The Private Placement is subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
Marshall Farris, CEO, Corporate Secretary and a director of the Company, purchased 200,000 Units and his participation is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Private Placement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the Private Placement involves Mr. Farris, exceeds $2,500,000. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Private Placement as the details of the Private Placement and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
Early Warning Disclosure
Prior to the issuance of the units, Mr. Farris held 2,550,000 Common Shares. Following completion of the Private Placement, Mr. Farris now has control and direction over an aggregate of 2,750,000 Common Shares, Warrants exercisable to acquire 200.000 Common Shares and Stock Options exercisable to acquire 275,000 Common Shares. The Common Shares controlled by Mr. Farris represent approximately 20.54% of the outstanding Common Shares of the Company.
All securities of the Company controlled by Mr. Farris are held for investment purposes. In the future, Mr. Farris (directly or indirectly), may acquire and/or dispose of securities of the Company through the market, privately or otherwise, as circumstances or market conditions may warrant.
This portion of this news release is issued pursuant to National Instrument 62-103 - The Early Warning System and Related Take-Over Bid and Insider Reporting Issues of the Canadian Securities Administrators, which also requires an early warning report to be filed with the applicable securities regulators containing additional information with respect to the foregoing matters. A copy of the early warning report filed by Mr. Farris in connection with completion of the Private Placement is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).

The options are exercisable at $0.10 per share for five years from the date of grant and vest immediately. The grant is subject to the provisions of the Company's Stock Option Plan, the policies of the CSE and applicable securities laws.
